A History of English Law Volume 2: Book II Anglo Saxon Antiquities (499 - 1066)

Sir William Searle Holdsworth was professor of constitutional law at University College, London (1903–8). After 1922 he was Vinerian professor of English law at Oxford. Holdsworth's greatest achievement is his History of English Law in 17 Volumes.

The work begins with Anglo-Saxon times, and it is an account of legal procedure and court organization down to the Judicature Acts of 1875 and of the important phases of substantive law through the 18th century Many authorities consider Holdsworth's history among the most thorough scholarly accounts of English law ever written.

Please note that new copies of Holdsworth do not have dust jackets.
